WANDERERS get back down to business in League One with a trip to MK Dons - one of last season's pacesetters.

Ian Evatt's side are still buoyed by victory against Charlton Athletic last time out in what should be a test of their top six credentials.


Wanderers have no new injury worries ahead of the game at MK but are unlikely to risk Icelandic striker Jon Dadi Bodvarsson after his recent return from a hamstring injury.

Lloyd Isgrove is still not over a niggling foot injury but could play a part in next week’s Papa John’s Trophy game at Tranmere Rovers.

Ian Evatt says had planned to make “five or six” changes from the team which had been due to play against Cheltenham Town on Saturday.


MK Dons missed out on automatic promotion by just a point last season and were beaten by Wycombe Wanderers in the play-off semi-finals.

They lost key players like Harry Darling, Scott Twine and Troy Parrott over the summer, with manager Liam Manning bringing in 14 new faces.

So far the team has struggled to settle, losing four of their first seven. They start the day in 18th position in League One after seven games.


Wanderers have never won a game at Stadium:MK, losing there last season thanks to goals from Mo Eisa and Scott Twine.

Overall, they have won twice, drawn three times and lost three times in eight previous meetings with the Dons.

Jay Spearing remains the only Bolton player to have scored in MK – that in a 1-1 draw in League One in February 2017.
